"If you meet someone who is an utter turd, and in life you will, don't do that thing they tell you which is imagine them all naked, and then you'll have contempt for them; that's not the point. Imagine the absolute truth of even the most aggressive, unpleasant, self-regarding, vain, unsympathetic person you could ever meet and remember that they are not only desperate to be loved, but to love. I've never met a human being of whom that isn't true. And it's so astonishing that we don't even bother to think about it because it's almost too much for our brains to take in, I think."
~Stephen Fry, Hay Festival, 2010
And here's a bonus, my favorite comic Lewis Black in "Red, White and Screwed."
